Lake Greeson's Largemouth Bass have big appetites and aggressive behavior.

Limits of Bass by Greeson guide Ron Hawley's customers.Largemouth  bass in lake Greeson feed on shad, bream, crayfish, worms, lizards, insects, mice, small birds, and frogs. Black bass and their food are usually found in and around cover. Black bass typically use logs, docks, underwater ridges, submerged brush, moss and rocks for cover. In Lake Greeson, black bass will start spawning when water temperatures reaches 62 degrees F. The males move into shallower water on gravel flats, points and humps. The largemouth spends most of its time in its home range, a small, concealed area of deep cover, quietly waiting for food to come its way.

55 - 65 degrees F. at 5-20 feet deep
The warming temperatures of spring draw the bass into shallow waters where they actively feed until spawning. March through June are Lake Greeson's prime bass fishing months. As water temperatures start climbing above 50 F., bass begin to feed aggressively.


65 - 70 degrees F., less than 10 feet deep

Use slow rolled spinner baits, shallow running crankbaits, worming or flipping worms, salt craws, lizards, and jig'n pig combinations for bass in less than 10 feet of water. As bass become more active, use jerk baits.


75 degrees F. and warmer
1-20 feet deep

As upper lake layers warm, bass typically go deep to cooler waters. In summer, bass will surface to feed, generally before dawn and after dusk. When bass are on top, use buzzbaits or propbaits. When bass are deep, fish a light line and split shot, with small plastic worms or grubs, off rocky or brushy lake points.


40-65 degrees F. at 1-60 feet deep

Fall fishing is the reverse of spring. Retrieve faster in early fall and slower in late fall. In winter, go very deep and extremely slow off lake points with jigging spoons and small plastics.
